im confused as to what forces are acting on points a and c.
Take components

okay, so i did the sum of F in the y direction.. = Ay + Cy - W - T = 0 and then the sum of F in the x direction... = Ax + Cx - Fb = 0 then i did the moment about A and got Fb = 8.9, but i am stuck there.
oh and Fb is acting in the negative x direction on point B.
At point A, it's the Normal reaction from Ground and the Tension from the string... at C it's just the string, is Pulley Mas-less and friction-less?
i assumeee the pulley has no mass nor friction.
wait so how many unknowns do i have ?
This is getting confusing for me :(
me too! haha. and yay '94 kids !
i am not sure what direction the force on point a is acting. perpendicular to the rod or the cable?

Does the answer 12.78 lb sound reasonable? I can't remember how do you do this, so I just did a bunch of stuff that seemed to be reasonable and I got that =\
it does sound reasonable! but the back of the book has the answers, and evidently T = 9.08 lb ):
  • S
Hmmm.. Well at first i did what you did, sum of the forces in the y direction: Ay + Cy - T - 15 = 0
  • S
A is experiencing a force T, that's pulling on it at 10 degrees, so the y component of that force T that is acting on a would be sin(10) that would be equal to 0.1736T. So now 0.1736T + Cy - 1T - 15 = 0 -0.8264T + Cy - 15 = 0
  • S
Now if we can substitute something like that for Cy as well we could move on, but idk what to substitute for it cause there are no degrees for point C
maybe we are overlooking something. ummmmm.

explain pleaseee.
\[T \times \cos 10 \times 5 \times \sin 40 = \frac{5}{2} \times \cos 40 \times 15\] T is the tension in the cable. I used concept of Torques, one Torque is in effect due to its weight (rod's weight) the other is from the horizontal component of Cable's Tension (T * cos 10). Note. I calculated Toque about A.
  • S
Sum of x direction Ax - Fb = 0 Fb you said = 8.9 Ax - 8.9 = 0 Ax = 8.9 cos(10)T = 8.9 0.98T = 8.9 T = 9.08
i havent learned torques, but s is something it looks like i can understand. thank you both !!
  • S
That kinda looks reasonable when you look at it. I think theres no Cx because its just like a continuation of Ax or something.. idk.. i can't remember.. I took it like a year and a half ago so i can't remember.. i'm gonna be a crappy engineer lol.. can't remember much lol
  • S
But at least it give the right answer.. i hope the procedure is right as well =)
sike i still dont know what engineering even is and i am almost done with my first year of college. gracias yall !

Don't worry, you'll figure it out =D De nada =D
